Logistics & 3PL
How Can Logistics Robots Help You Work Smarter?
In the face of an evolving digital landscape and rising consumer expectations, the logistics industry has experienced unprecedented growth. Yet, this rapid expansion comes with its own set of challenges. One of the most pressing issues is the increasing labor shortage, affecting not only manual labor jobs but also those requiring higher levels of skill and education.
How can logistics companies navigate this challenge while ensuring their operations remain efficient and profitable? The answer lies in logistics automation, specifically using logistics robots and AMR logistics solutions.
What are the benefits of logistic automation and AMR?
Who wouldn't want to increase their workplace's appeal while revolutionizing their operations?
By taking over manual, repetitive tasks, logistics robots enable employees to focus on more complex, value-added roles, thus creating a more engaging and rewarding work environment. Here's why human-AMR collaboration is beneficial for you working within logistics and 3PL.
Optimizing Workflows with logistics robots
In the highly pressured 3PL industry, an optimized and responsive workflow is essential for success. The logistics robots from MiR use sophisticated programming technology, scanners, and cameras to make optimal decisions. The AMRs remove human error and the need for as many inventory checks, meaning 3PL providers can see shorter, more responsive workflows with reduced bottlenecks. The collaborative nature of the mobile robot also means that it can safely work alongside its human counterparts, responsibly optimizing productivity. Take, for example, MiR100, the robot that can help you automate your internal transportation and logistics tasks.
Cost Optimization through AMR Logistics
It can be hard to calculate the actual cost of workplace injuries, from fines and reputational damage to lost workdays and damaged equipment. It's not just the direct costs but also decreased productivity and increased employee turnover. By implementing logistics automation systems like AMRs from MiR, which use a multi-sensor safety system to avoid collisions, businesses within logistics and 3PL can see significant cost optimization.

See how Florisa uses automation in logistics and transportation of heavy loads with MiR1000
In the past, Florisa relied on manned forklifts to move 90 tons of fabric to the production floor. With the introduction of MiR's logistics robots, the company has significantly improved its transportation capacity, moving up to 200 tons per day. This represents a staggering 122% increase compared to the previous manual operations. Read the full case here
